Spencer Elliott of Charleston began his musical journey on the piano, which eventually lead him to the alternative punk scene. Always a composer, Elliott decided to teach himself to play the acoustic guitar in the modern finger style in 2007. To call Spencer a rising star in this unique genre would be an understatement, his play has gotten the attention of many across the country and the world.

His music is a treat for the ears, and amazing to the eyes! If you were only hearing Spencer play, you'd swear there were multiple musicians involved. Many layers of percussion, rhythm, and intricate chords being played at once!
